Ladysmith golfers bridge their gully

Crew set to work building a trail and a new bridge so golfers could get across a gully and stream that bisects the course.

A culvert that allowed players to get over the stream collapsed in December, cutting off part of the course. Now players of the nine-hole par-three, just behind Coronation Mall, will be able to avoid a majour handicap in their rounds. Ladysmith Coun. Rob Hutchins was the first golfer to officially cross the new bridge, reported Mike Smith, who headed up the crew that restored the crossing.
